What a great cause! Come check out this awesome project of drop off your extra yarn on Friday morning :)

We are officially "not knitting" at The Torch Riviera on Friday, 3/29 beginning at 10AM. The Riv will have their usual menu available so even if you don't want to "not knit" you can eat if you like or just visit and watch this project in action.
EVERYONE is welcome to come try their hand at this fun activity and you do NOT need to know how to knit. Please join Tiffany Sutter, Diana Lipp Anderson, Glori Crowell, Patty Sutter, Marge Bussa Baldwin and lots more great folks!
PS: We hope that Tracy Diane Matula notices her yarn bowl doing a little good. You need to get back into clay!
